The Canadian Association for Williams Syndrome (CAWS) provides support to Williams syndrome (WS) individuals, their families and caregivers, coast-to-coast. Our grassroots, parent-volunteer run organization is on a mission to spread awareness, raise funds, support research and connect families touched by WS. We are a small but mighty National Registered Charity, whose impact can be felt in tiny towns and big cities across Canada.
We strive to connect families, researchers, caregivers and medical professionals across Canada; building a national community to help those with WS reach their full potential. We support families through initial diagnosis, the school system, post-secondary schooling opportunities and skills training, adult employment and housing.
CAWS is a registered non-profit organization in Canada.
